Before I invested in (or was even aware of) the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Range, I thought to try this night cream from Neutrogena…It claimed to be Light, which is exactly what I aimed for at the time till I researched some more. Turns out, I shouldn’t have tried..this is one of the most horrible creams I’ve ever tried…Read on to find out more..

- Absorbs quickly
- Quantity: 63gms
- Price: INR300
- Packaging – This comes in a medium sized tub with a blue screw top lid. It’s quite secure and travel friendly….not too hygienic though considering you have to dip into the tub. Personally I don’t mind that but for some, it may be an issue…
- Color & Texture – It is a stark white cream which is soooooo thick!! I’m not really fond of this texture because I feel like it just sits on the skin like an oily layer refusing to budge. It takes eons to get absorbed and in my case (I have combi skin), it doesn;t even get absorbed..In the morning after I wake up I have a oily layer on my face.
- Fragrance- this claims to be fragrance free…I can’t understand how anyone could make this claim. This has a very distinctive fragrance..Infact, its smells exactly like the Ponds Cold Creams…and well, I hated the smell to say the least.
My experience with Neutrogena Light Night Cream:
I have already mentioned above how this made my skin so oily.. I use a really tiny amount..I mean like maybe a tiny dollop or so and even then this acts as if the aim of its life is to bring all the oil in my body to the surface of my face by morning.
Also, it broke me out!! Within 2 nights of using this, I awoke to a smattering of pimples on my forehead and on the side of my nose. Really disgusting…I looked like a oil kadai in which I’d just finished frying puri’s!!! Horrid, horrid cream.
In an attempt to make this work, I even tried applying this only to my cheeks which are really dry..But even then the next morning, my cheeks were glistening like how a heroine’s lips are supposed to in a sappy romance romance novel when the hero is about to kiss her! Sorry for the bad analogy but I really can’t help it…
So I really can’t see this working for super dry skinner beauties either…I started using this on my body on irritated skin..But it form such an icky layer that I have to wipe it off with a wipe cloth after sometime….This cream is def going to be binned!
I won’t bother with listing the pros and cons because I have nothing nice to say about this cream and all the negatives have been emphatically described above…
